Subseries 2.2
Campaign records, 1965-1995
Boxes 25-35 and 54-55; OP 1 and 4

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of the records of Michael Lomax's campaigns for public office, as well as records relating to Lomax's work on Maynard Jackson's 1973 campaign for Mayor of Atlanta. Records of Lomax's campaigns for Mayor of Atlanta and the Fulton County Board of Commissioners document Lomax's campaign platforms on crime, housing, public safety, gay and lesbian rights and women's rights, and also include campaign research, such as surveys of voter attitudes in Atlanta and opposition research. Records of Citizens for Lomax primarily contain information about campaign financing and fundraising activities. The subseries also includes mailing lists and volunteer lists for his campaigns.

Maynard Jackson mayoral campaign files are comprised of records of the 1973 campaign run by Lomax as well as records of the 1989 campaign run against Lomax. This includes campaign platforms on crime, education, economic development, taxes and public transportation, as well as drafts of speeches given to the National Organization for Women and the Atlanta Press Club. One notable speech included in the subseries is the State of the City Address (1975), originally drafted by Pearl Cleage in 1974. Additional files contain background materials pertaining to public debate on local and national black leadership, forced sterilization, legal aid, and Vietnam veterans. The subseries also includes a small number of files relating to Jackson's Mayoral administration.
